World cup, Cabinet and University life, and Camberwell Arts Festival 2010!

Obviously a bit obsessed by the World Cup in South Africa watching as many games as I can and of course witnessing England's grim showing culminating in the heavy defeat to the Germans yesterday!!

Lots of stuff at the University with training and briefings all round as in process of reducing hours to time share between London Met and Southwark Council!! IOSH Training, Business Continuity and Environmental Briefings for the past few weeks!!

Getting out and about as I really dont want to "manage" from Tooley Street! Met Cllr. Lauder at the Hour Glass Pub last week to talk about asb and also met Tessa Jowell and Lambeth Councillors and Cabinet Member of problems in the Herne Hill area!! I am meeting up with my Lewisham Counterpart soon and getting out to all Ward SNT Panels to find out what people think on the ground about Community Safety!!
I attended a really good initiative at Dockhead Fire Station where young people spend a week as a Firefighter and "Pass Out" in font of family!! great idea and hope to see it develop further!

The Camberwell Arts Festival 2010 is in full swing with lots of very visible things going on which is good and work progressing on the South London Gallery and the Camberwell Leisure Centre so lots happening and all good in Camberwell!!!
